National Pecan Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: March 25, 2017 is National Pecan Day.

Pecan Day

Pecan Day is a day to commemorate and go nuts over pecans. The accurate origins of this holiday are confusing, but the history of pecans could be traced all the way back to 16th century precolonial America. Pecan plants are claimed to be the only nut plants belonging to The united state. This crazy day is about appreciating this scrumptious nut, which is known for its light crunch and buttery taste.

There are several ways folks could reveal their love for pecans-- like getting a handful to munch on, adding them to tossed salads, making a fascinating pecan pie, consuming pecan crusted fish for dinner or having pecan ice cream. Share the delight by throwing a fun Pecan Day celebration and pecans are a fantastic group treat that can be served in a multitude of designs such as popular praline-flavored pecans. Plant a beautiful pecan plant to make the it a remarkable day to consistently come back to.
